Not sure I get the outsourcing model. Labor cost for in-house employees is on the order of salary x 1.25 (benefits) more or less. Cost charged for contracted labor is often at cost x an more escalated multiplier (e.g., x 2.5, or x 3.2). Is Theatres of War that important to move up in schedule and pay more for? I guess it depends on what other CIGs devs are producing at the same time.
This outsourcing is often times far more expensive then trying to keep it inhouse which is why I wondered if they saw an opportunity to sell another game off the SC IP.
